Sweet Snowman Rug

Dear Friends~~
It has been a long time since my last post. I have to admit, Facebook has stolen me away. So easy and fast to do, but then I was looking back on my blog entries and remembered how much I enjoyed doing it and will try to post more often!!!
Just finished this sweet snowman rug 9x19 by Star Rug Co. what a fun hook. I love Maria Bartons rug designs because they are whimsical and so sweet.
They make you smile.
What have you been doing that makes you smile?
Best Wishes~

Birthday #58

Hello Friends~

Time sure does fly by!! Life can be simply overwhelming for sure~

My beloved husband bought me this beautiful rug for my Birthday this year, It is a rug made by Puddleduck Primitives. She has the most amazing eye for color. She sells her rugs on Ebay and I own 3 of her rugs, but I would love to have more.
I hook rugs myself but never tire of buying other artists rugs!! Right now I am working on Magdelena's Lollipop Basket and I will post a picture soon. It is such a wonderful reproduction rug and so much fun to hook and is just so lovely~

Best Wishes~

Winter Woolen Workshop

Hello Dear Friends~
My friend Ella and I attended the Winter Woolen Workshop last weekend in Kokomo, IN. We had a wonderful time, met some awesome people and shopped till we dropped. There were some workshops in the main "Sieberling House" and vendors in the carriage house next door. Both buildings were so awesome, a great venue to have this event at. There was also an antique mall very close to our hotel and of course, we found a few lovely things there as well!!!! There was a surprise snow storm on Saturday, but nothing could stop us!! 

The Sieberling House

Love the colors used for this quilt.

This quilt was just so pretty .

The above rug is so cool, 12 ladies were doing 12 squares on each others rug, then all 12 ended up with their own rug, and they would do the background themselves. The large square in the middle was also hooked by the owner of each rug. I would love to this with friends. 

Fell in love with this sweet rug and bought the pattern.

These display boxes were just beautiful.

More Goodies

More lovely things

More awesome things, hand dyed velvet, hand dyed hooking fabric, fibers,patterns 

This is a pictures of the goodies that came home with me! I even got a #9 cutting blade for $5, the gal who sold it had just bought a Townsend. Lucky me!

Here is a close up of some of the items I got

The pattern I bought

This is a picture of Ella's goodies. 

Ella bought this rug hooking pattern of a dragonfly!

Elyse Reeves

Dear Friends~
I just ask that you say a prayer for my dear childhood friend, Renee and her family. Her beloved grand daughter, Elyse passed away today from brain cancer. If you would like to read about her brave battle, you can find it on FaceBook, search Praying for Baby Elyse. Over 9600 followers, she inspired many in her short life with love, and hope and for bringing people together to pray for someone they didn't even know. People accepted God as their personal Savior following her on Facebook. I never met Elyse either, as my friend lives in Alabama. But I got to know her and love her during this journey. She is my hero. Dear Angel got her wings today, Fly high Sweet Baby Elyse. You will never be forgotten.....  
In God's Loving Arms~
